Drooping eyebrows are also called ptosis or blepharoptosis; result from a reduction in the muscle tone that controls the eyelids or the breakdown of the eyelids collagen and elastin causing the upper eyelid or the skin above it to fall to a lower position than normal.

It may come and go, or it might be permanent. Ptosis can affect one or both eyes. It may be present at birth (congenital ptosis), or it may develop gradually over decades.

The droopy eyebrow can make people look fatigued, stressed out, and tired even if they are well-rested. Depending on the severity of the condition, droopy upper eyelids can block or greatly reduce vision depending on how much it obstructs the pupil.


The droopy eyebrow can have various causes. Some of them are due to stress, fatigue, restlessness, and lack of sleep. More often, it is due to aging or medical disorders.
